Policy on Post Conflict Reconstruction and Development

The AU policy on PCRD is intended to serve as a guide for the development of comprehensive policies and strategies that elaborate measures that seek to consolidate peace and prevent relapse to violence, promote sustainable development and pave the way for growth and regeneration in countries and regions emerging from conflict. Given the peculiarities of each conflict situation, this policy is conceived as a flexible template that can be adapted to, and assist, affected regions and countries, in their endeavours towards reconstruction, security and development.

How does this policy tackle violence against women and enhance the WPS Agenda? 

No 45 of the Policy on Post Conflict Reconstruction and Development document extensively speaks to the African Union Member States developing policy instruments that ensure gender mainstreaming in all spectrums,  build the capacity of government institutions to be able to address gender issues, and also state building the capacity of women.
